MAC Studio Careblend/Pressed Powder Review (with photos and swatches)

If you have seen my last haul posts, you know that I just got quite a few of things from the new MAC collection Shop MAC, Cook MAC, and Vera. Today I want to share with you on one of the products from Cook MAC collection, and that is the MAC Studio Careblend/Pressed Powder.

MAC Studio Careblend/Pressed Powder comes in two shades: medium and dark. As the name says, it is supposed to provide you a soft and smooth finish after first application. The texture is extremely soft like cream-like powder and hence easy to blend.

I thought I would not get any of this because it is just a 'pressed powder.' I swatched the medium shade, and I felt it was too light on my skin. However, I fell in love at the first sight when I saw the dark shade. It has no shimmer, have a satin finish, and a perfect caramel tan color. The MAC guy in the counter said it also looks really good on photographs (see down below for more pictures).

So, I tried it on today, and the color really gives my pale skin a natural healthy glow. I use it to contour my cheeks up to my temples, down to my jawline, and neck. I really love the finish look - it does give me a soft satin finish, and seems like I have a very smooth skin.

If you are crazy about bronzer or contouring, I recommend you to get this one, but honestly there is a ton of bronzers that look like this (Smashbox Bronze Light has the closest texture and formula with this). If you have a darker skin tone, this pressed powder will give your face a fresh-looking and smooth skin all over. Get it now while it still lasts beauties! It is a limited edition product.

Price: $23
